    DSG 1321: Fantasy: MOUSE SUITS-UP FOR THE LONG JOURNEY

    [ Hooray for mouse! ]

    [ Now, this one is rather open-ended from the perspective that "suiting up" could take any number of forms. ]

    [ It depends on the journey... ]

    [ Is mouse about to journey across the lawn?... ]

    [ ...Or through the woods? ]

    [ ...Maybe to another country?... ]

    [ ...Or under the sea? ]

    [ ...Into Endless Cave?... ]

    [ ...Or across the universe? ]

    [ Of course, mouse's journey may take it through - and across - all of the above! ]

    [ Mouse is on a mission. ]

    Hello. This is my first attempt at a DSG topic. The whole computer art/wacom tablet thing is still a little foreign to me. I'm an oil on canvas man. I spent about an hour and a half to two hours on this (trying to stay true to the theory of the forum).

    DSG 1321: Fantasy: MOUSE SUITS-UP FOR THE LONG JOURNEY

    A couple of dsg's back, dan liimatta mentioned something about spending more time for a sketch, so this time, I took 6 hours...

    ...and got off topic, sorta.

    Mouse, aka attempted-Skaven-look-alike that somehow ended up being hyena-like, is 'suiting up' by taking the arm of a Space Marine power suit to replace the one that the Space Marine cut off with his chain sword.

    Felt good about the sketch, but not so good about the coloring.

    starseed - wow... that's funny, and very well done. I love the non-realistic, yet obvious portrayal you've got going.
    huhwhat - Reminds me of warhammer.
    Apocalypse_Rex - you mind- just- rubbin' off a lil bit of what you've got on me? I never can get the kind of detail sharpness you get, let alone in just an hour.
    Hamsta - hehe, big journey to the big office.
    Nightblue - haha! Cute! I wonder how he thinks he's gonna lug that bag around.
    Eullogy - I love the simplicity, and the timid look on the mouse.

    @ ryoken - i have a few 'tricks' I use and sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't (i'm newbish really). mainly to do with using texture and working at double res or more. After I'm broadly finished, I will take into photoshop, play with curves (my level range is usually somehow broken a bit) and overlay some layers based on the image (sometimes a layer with sharpen on it, and delete some parts where you don't want focus, sometimes using a mask to select a circular gradient around a focal point, delete rest of layer, than play with blend mode, colored gradient overlays - all sorts really til it gets closer to how i want, then when i resize down i just use the unsharp mask in some manner to pic out any lost grit.)

    also starting to LOVE the grain feature in painter, its so cool once you get some control over it! experiment!

    What a cool subject. I went for a one hour pencil sketch with some quick photoshop coloring. I love this technique where you take a scanned pencil sketch and ramp up the contrast. Throw a new layer over the top set to multiply in the blending options. Select the character and hide the selection then just have fun painting without fear of going over the lines. Very fast and loads of fun.

    Arteater: Im wouldn't be much help with textures, because Im kind of a beginner to it aswell. I usually grab an interesting (not too overpowering) papery texture and slap it on a layer above my image. I then set that layer to multiply and play about with the ocapacity of it until I feel its right. Thing I like about texture is that it can make an image alot more natural looking and less like the image has been done in a digital program. I reckon you should give it a go, it's all about experimenting ;-)

    Zaelzar: good drawing, i like the solidity of the mouse heads. The legs on the floor isn't quite in the perspective? Like right leg of the mouse should be closer to the viewer than left? i might be wrong here

    Eullogy: I really would have liked to draw more mechanical desing on the suit, quess i have to practise. Im jealous

    Ponyone: Reminds me of a mobius, original desing, like it in short. Could the coulours have more saturation and contrast between elements?

    Ronin-Tiger: Haha, made me laught. I like the night mood and colours. Could the mouse be drawed more like out of isometric perspective, like little bit more foreshortened and looking toward viewer? sorry this is hard to explain as english isn't my original lanquage

    Wayne Jansen: Hello, im newcomer too and trying to come up in terms with little cintiq. I really like the composition and painterly look of the mouse's head.Colours really match up with each other. Now make a backround with negative space or something which make yourt character stands out and you are really strating to rock with that rock.
    do you use intuos or what?

    Chelette: I like the light and design here, really good drawing. I have heard people talking about tighter edge control, that is problem with me but not so much here. I wonder how one can do it, is it with the brushes or drawing edges with more care?...

    Nightblue: Good composition and light is nice looking. If there would be anything helpful but needless suggestions maybe little more hue variety in the colours, like in the violet dress, cheese and green bag. Good one anyway

    DojonSwan: I have to tell you that composition and drawing here shadows the colouring, it is really good and interesting! i mean colours isn't bad but when you draw like this they kind of stand out for not so good as your drawing skills. Light and shadows maybe, contrast between subject and backround? looking good anyway mister

    Arteater: you can draw too, good stuff, good lively pose and face expression. Is the cat on the bacround intentionally vague, like zooming effect of a slr camera?

    Ink-Ronin: I really like how tha backround makes the mouse stand out in the picture and composition as well. The running of the mouse could maybe be a little more 3d and dynamic, like the weight of the mouse is really on the foreleg. Also the edge control, kind of sharpness in the edged is something i am jealous here, how do you do it?

    ScribbleCath: Really nice texture! also the mouse is very nicely drawed and designed, ready for a children book where the mouse hops from the cliff and falls to his bloody death (woot, really "children" book idea)
    If i have anything to "critique" the floor of the cliff could be on the same perspective as the mouse is standing, i know it is a composition thing but it stand out a bit i quess

    Hamsta: What can i say, you know your anatomy. This feels alive

    Apocalypse_rex: you know im kind of person who finds light really important in a picture and here it is captured really good, the way light burns to the with on the fingers make it stand out.

    Huhwhat: I don't think it is off topic, there is a mouse and a scifi warfare goin on with huge fallen warmachine, i like this a lot

    Starseed: I thought about using computer mouse as well but not in this way, original

    Ryoken: This is really organ drawing with the mouse and i like light in the colouring as well, maybe a bit more shadow in the window wall but im not expert myself with light so i might be wrong

    iLustre: hehee, go for it mouse. Fisheye makes the backround stand out nicely, colour could use a bit more variety in huess i quess. Good stuff

    Josephrey:subtle and lively, i really like this one. Maybe the left leg of the mouse, the one close to sack should be more rotated towards the viewer if he is putting his weight on it? I have to sit up from computer and try this position myself to see how it goes... (propably end up with a broken spine)

    Southern: I have to confess that here your drawing skill are so good that colouring stands out as not that good. I am jealous how you make your clothes solid and wrinkled, damn! Colours anyway could use direction of light so we would see where the light is coming and bit variety of hue in colours itself. It also just could be matter of taste, i dont know

    XCNTLNX: I f you did that in 10 minutes, i wonder what you will do in 100 minutes? Please show us

    TheBeast: Thanks man, i like to draw light to the point where it is unbelievable as realistic,i quess it is just my thing. I tried to put emotion in picture on grand skale, nice to know someone noticed

    Anthis: You did this with a mouse? You really should get tablet is you are this good with mouse or did you make this in a place where there is no access to one? (like in work)
    The shadows on foreground gives this good image depht. This is something i have to try myself as well.


    huh, that was all i quess. Please feel free to critique me if you find something that i could push further into, after all aren't we all here to get better
